Shannon Bragg-Stitton, Director, Integrated Energy & Storage Systems Division, Idaho National Laboratory
Dr. Shannon Bragg-Sitton is the Director for the Integrated Energy & Storage Systems Division at Idaho National Laboratory (INL). She is internationally recognized for her work on innovative applications of nuclear energy and other clean energy options. Nuclear energy can go beyond supporting the electricity grid to supply energy to various industrial, transportation and energy storage applications. This research enables us to maximize energy utilization, increase energy production facilities' profitability, and improve grid reliability and resilience.
Shannon served from 2014-2023 as the National Technical Director for the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) Integrated Energy Systems program. She is currently the Chair of the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) Task Force on Non-electric Applications of Nuclear Heat. Throughout her career at INL, Shannon has additionally held DOE-NE program leadership roles for space nuclear power and propulsion systems, advanced nuclear fuels, used fuel disposition, and microreactor development.
Shannon holds an MS and PhD in Nuclear Engineering from University of Michigan, an MS in Medical Physics from the University of Texas at Houston, and a BS in Nuclear Engineering from Texas A&M University.
